Process Control and Automation
The Research Group of Process Control and Automation, prof Sirkka-Liisa Jämsä-Jounela
The Research Group of Process Control and Automation, as a member of the department was founded in 1987. The aim of the laboratory is to serve all fields of process technology - chemical, metallurgical and forest products - in terms of process automation.
The laboratory gives courses in process modelling, simulation, control, optimisation and automation as well as in production control. The undergraduate students typically have a few years background of process engineering studies, after which a one-to-two-year portion of automation studies. Post-graduate students typically work in the field of process technology - either in the industry or in research institutes or universities - while studying.
